Feeling a little inundated by cookies? So am I. Or maybe it's just because my last 3 out of 4 posts have been about cookies.
Though that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Of course, I got it in my head to mail cookies out again this year, which is what sparked this little flurry of cookie making. And oh my -- shipping these things are expensive!
On a side note: avoid the post office. Apparently when you tell the post office lady that the packages are FRAGILE - with it written all over - it makes it fair game for her to shake them (in front of you), then throw them into a bin in the back. Lady, I might not be able to see you do it, but I can most definitely hear the loud bang of them hitting the bin from some distance. I didn't just write FRAGILE on them for my health. Grrr.
So... if you received a box of crushed up cookies... my apologies. For going through the post office.
Anyhoo, so apparently I have far too much time on my hands. I might have made a little guide for the cookies. (I see you rolling your eyes over there, but you know you hate getting food and not having a clue what it is, don't deny it.)
I was inspired by the classic box of chocolates. Because heaven forbid I get a coconut covered chocolate. Or you may just find a bunch of fingernail punctures on the bottom of the chocolates to see what's inside. Not that I've ever been guilty of doing that before.
Not only did I include cookies, but I threw in a little baggie of Peppermint Hot Chocolate, too. With a little scrapbooking paper, fancy scissors, and Photoshop, I think they turned out cute. Okay, and maybe a little bit hard to read.
So, here's my run down on this year's must-have cookies:
Swirl Sugar Cookies
Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies
Chocolate Peppermint Kiss Blossoms
I suggest you start at the top and work your way down. Or start anywhere, really. Because I can't rank things when they're all so good. It's a character flaw, I know. That I can deal with -- not having cookies, I can't.
